About the Event
Make your poems roar!
In this workshop we will read well known warrior poets and discuss techniques you can use to add strength and depth to your work.
We will also discuss social justice and responsibility and what it means to be a warrior poet because it goes far beyond writing poems.
This workshop is for anyone ready to put truth to paper and add actions to their words.
